In a world filled with wrong, William Safire continues to amaze with his ability to be the wrongest.

From his column, The Lowest Blow (which in itself is an oddly placed pun):

“The memoir about the Kerry-Edwards campaign that will be the best seller will reveal the debate rehearsal aimed at focusing national attention on the fact that Vice President Cheney has a daughter who is a lesbian.”

The truth is that there will be two much more interesting memoirs. The first will explain why Dick Cheney couldn’t challenge the president’s religiosity because it simply proved to be too useful to him and the other neocons. The second will recount how many people who think they’re smart were able to check their frontal lobes at the door in order to defend a president they couldn’t possibly respect.

Concentration is important!
